Our subject (see current photo below) was constructed in 1933 with an actual age of 75. What is your estimated, approximate 'effective age' based on your lifetime experience and observations? Your participation in the poll is appreciated and please spare me that the poll is flawed. It simply requires your honest, subjective answer.

1. 100 years
2. 95 years
3. 85 years
4. 75 years
5. 65 years
6. 55 years
7. 45 years
8. 35 years
9. 25 years

Flawed Poll!! I don't do effective age. As evidenced by this photo, looks can be deceiving. How bout her heart and lungs? Do they look 35 years old, or do they look like the 1933 model? And what about her frame? Osteoporosis? Can't tell til you peel back all the vinyl.

Just kidding. She looks like a woman in her 40's. God bless her. #7 for me.

Can't you similar have a newly constructed improvement with flawed construction?

Rendering an opinion of Effective Age sans measurement, full length anterior and posterior visual inspection supported by many many photos and and at least cursory, visual, interior inspection is misleading. While some cosmetic exterior updating, which appears amateurish, illusionary, and insufficient to meet Current Construction Code, is evident - simply viewing a photograph from out of state is insufficent to render a well-supported (although she apparently is) opinion. It is entirely possible the subject represents a legal, no-longer-conforming, pre-historic use. Additional on-line research indicates the second floor possibly represents Functional Obsolescence-Superadequacy. Unable to confirm without "hands-on" manual and "birds eye view" (preferably on a beach in St. Tropez) extended, visual site inspection.

I don't do "honk honk" bys........ sorry. :laugh:

I would have to personally inspect the property in order to offer my opinion. :)

Does she have permits for all those renovations and reconstruction? Is there any original equipment left?
